BSc in Applied Economics

Suppose that you get your dream-job as an analyst, and on the very first day your boss entrusts you with the task to write a report about how the recent changes in the American fiscal policy affect the direction and volume of international trade and the Forint (that’s the name of the Hungarian currency)-Euro exchange rate. The deadline is 5 o’clock on the same day, thus to solve this problem you have to be aware of the relevant economic concepts, ideas, principles, equations and models. Also you have to have some experience in using those mathematical and econometric methods that enable you to evaluate the problem quantitatively, and have to demonstrate that you not just know how to conduct a proper economic research but you are also able to communicate your rigorous economic analysis in a coherent way.

Exactly these are the skills, and technical competence that the Bachelor of Science in Applied Economics Program can offer.
